i have papaver in my garden and think they are beautiful, when the flower dies do in need to cut just the head off or take the stem it was on back to the ground

On plant Papaver orientale



Take the stem - but remember to leave some of the later flowers to turn to seed - they will probably seed themselves if you do that,and you'll have more next year.
